One-sample z Test for a single Mean: General Setting: X 1 , ., X n : SRS require large sample size n no requirement on population distribution μ is the unknown parameter of interest The null hypothesis is H 0 : μ = μ 0 The alternative hypothesis could be: H a : μ ≠ μ 0 (two-sided) H a : μ > μ 0 (one-sided) H a : μ < μ 0 (one-sided)

One-sample z Test for population proportion: General Setting: X 1 , ., X n : SRS require large sample size n population distribution: Bernoulli (0 or 1) with population proportion π π is the unknown parameter of interest The null hypothesis is H 0 : p = π 0 The alternative hypothesis could be: H a : p π 0 (two-sided) H a : p > π 0 (one-sided) H a : p < π 0 (one-sided)
